Let's hope he breaks his promise

President Barack Hussein Obama. It's official. Our duty (at least one of them) is to pray for him.

As for me, I'm praying that he will break at least one of his campaign promises. He said in a speech before Planned Parenthood, "The first thing I'll do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act."

Do you remember what the Freedom of Choice Act is? According to Senator Barbara Boxer who is a co-sponser of the bill: "The Freedom of Choice Act supercedes any law, regulation or local ordinance that impinges on a woman’s right to choose. That means a poor woman cannot be denied the use of Medicaid if she chooses to have an abortion."

Two things:
(1) States will lose any right to determine issues re: abortion. They won't be able to restrict it, or try to make it rare. They can't insist on parental notification; they can't protect doctors & nurses who refuse to perform abortions from losing their jobs. Freedom of Choice Act trumps everything.
(2) Your tax dollars will pay for abortions.

And Obama promised that the first thing he'll do as president is to sign this into law. Let's hope and pray that this is one campaign promise that he'll break.
